MODESTO — A medical group that provided health care in Stanislaus County jails for 20 years will start seeing inmates again in March.

Stanislaus County supervisors on Tuesday approved a five-year contract with California Forensic Medical Group, replacing a contract with a company that told the county in July that it wanted out.

Starting March 1, the county will pay a base amount of $711,838 a month to California Forensic of Monterey, with 3.5 percent annual increases built into the agreement. The county is required by law to provide medical and mental health services to the 1,450 inmates in the men's jail, public safety center, honor farm and juvenile hall.
